Pumpkin, spice and all things nice
Yep - it's that time of year again! Autumn, Halloween, the sesason of all things pumpkin!
Ever since I tried a pumpkin spice latte from a well-known coffee chain and had a delicious homemade pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving with friends in Canada, I've been a little obsessed myself!
But as you can imagine, many of these amazing pumpkin recipes aren't too diet friendly! That's why I wanted to find a recipe that was not only full of those autumn flavours but wouldn't send you off the rails if you're counting calories!
This recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/09/23/pumpkin-cream-cheese-bars/) fitted the bill perfectly! They're simple to make, flavoursome and only 68 calories per square (without the cream cheese and based on the recipe making 12 squares).
They're definitely worth a try if you are craving that warm spiced flavour.
I'd love to hear from you if you give this recipe a go - let me know how it turned out or if you make any substitutes that worked a treat 🙂
ps. If you're not sure where you can get canned pumpkin from - a quick Google search should bring it up.
